Jimmy Wilson's Seafood & Chophouse
The marinated blue crab fingers ($8.99) at Jimmy Wilson's Seafood & Chophouse (12109 Westheimer, 281-497-1110) is a refreshing, innovative dish you won't find anywhere else. Ten large, meaty claws, which have been boiled, are neatly arranged around a homemade olive mash that serves as dressing (and also as dip for the crispy French bread served here). The olive mash, made of finely chopped olives, spicy red peppers, capers and garlic marinated in olive oil for at least 30 days, has a wonderful flavor.
